Spring Training #26

Spring is here! Let’s dust off winter with some heart-pumping spring training.  During the month of April, Prana Fitness is going to post daily one workout move or yoga pose that you can do at home, at a park, or anywhere.

April 26th: Warrior Two

#26

Start in high plank.  Step one foot forward to be between your hands- this measures the lunge stance to make sure it’s as long as you are tall.  Stack front  knee above front ankle- never let the knee go forward of the ankle.  Flatten back foot down into ground at a slight inward angle.  Squeeze tummy strongly in and up towards ribcage.  Lift torso up perpendicular to the ground.  Extend arms out to your sides. Keep neck long and neutral.  Pull the front thigh muscles back into the hip socket.  Spiral the back glute under the body.  Level hips towards ground. Track front bent knee towards pinky edge of front foot.  Drive downward in the back foot’s outer edge but keep back knee unlocked.  Then adjust deeper into the pose by tucking tailbone down and sitting lower.  Broaden across collarbone like someone is pulling your arms longer.  Do both sides. Get it!
